Limiting the # of computers

The web says: Covers one person and allows activation on up to 5 personally owned computers

This seems like a counter-productive and useless limitation. Most users don't share their email account with others but many have more than 5 devices. For an email scheme to be usable it must be available to the user whenever and wherever they are. I, for example have about 12 devices. I don't often use more than one at a time but I would NEVER adopt an email scheme that required me to be using a specific, license computer to get mail.

It seems to me that the only thing that a scheme like this protects against is widespread adoption. Apple doesn't impose restrictions like this; they even have family sharing. MS doesn't. Only a few dinosaurs like adobe do this sort of thing.

I was linked to your site from libre office which, of course, has no limitations whatever. I will let them know that I think it's inappropriate for an open-source app to offer links to stuff with these kind of restrictions.

Anyway, don't ecpect to see me as a customer any time soon.

Describe your problem. Add as much detail as possible.

What did you expect instead

Describe steps leading to the problem.

Are you using any other plugins?

    Hi Dan,

    in order to use our software with Libreoffice, you don‘t need the GPG Mail Support Plan at all. You only need that, if you are interested in our OpenPGP integration for macOS Mail.

    Our software only works on macOS. Do you alone have 12 Mac computers or 12 Mac Computers in your company?
